Putting Poor People First by Fighting Climate Alarmism (Guest: Caleb Rossiter, Ph.D.)

September 12, 2019

Statistician Caleb Rossiter, executive director of the CO2 Coalition, says the extreme political left is harming the poor by hyping unfounded fears of a climate crisis.

Fossil fuels have brought billions of people out of abject poverty, yet political progressives would deny life giving, life changing fossil fuels to the millions of people still living in near prehistoric conditions. None of the scientifically derived data supports the claim that humans are causing a climate crisis, but policies intended to fight climate change are contributing to a humanitarian crisis and energy poverty.
